Recently, Vivo confirmed that it would be launching a new smartphone called the Vivo Z6 on February 29th in China. It will be arriving as the successor for the Vivo Z5 that had gone official in July 2019. The Vivo Z6 will be a mid-range 5G smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor. It will be equipped with a humungous 5,000mAh battery along with 44W fast charging technology. Ahead of the launch, a Vivo phone with model number V1963A has surfaced on the database of China’s TENAA telecom authority. The images of the phone haven’t appeared on TENAA, but the listing carries its entire specifications. The Vivo V1963A seems to be the forthcoming Vivo Z6 phone.
Vivo Z6 specifications and features
In January, the Vivo V1963A was first spotted on Geekbench. The same phone has made its way to TENAA today. The listing reveals that the smartphone measures 163.99 x 75.71 x 9.16mm and its weight is 201 grams. It is a TFT screen that offers full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,080 pixels.
An octa-core processor that clocks at 2.4GHz is at the helm of the Vivo V1963A. It appears to be the Snapdragon 765G that can clock at up to 2.4GHz. The phone may release in China in 6GB and 8GB RAM editions. The handset is loaded with Android 10. It lacks a microSD card slot. The V1963A will be arriving in the home market in multiple storage options like 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
There is a minimum capacity battery of 4,880mAh inside the V1963A. Its typical size could be 5,000mAh. It has a front-facing camera of 16-megapixels. The rear of the device has four cameras including a 48-megapixel main lens, an 8-megapixel camera and a pair of 2-megapixel sensors.
Ahead of the February 29th launch, Vivo has already confirmed some of its key features of the Vivo Z6 5G smartphone. The official renders of the phone shows that it flaunts a screen with a punch-hole at its top-right corner. The rear side of the smartphone has a rectangular camera system and a fingerprint reader. It will come with PC-grade liquid cooling technology. The phone will be available in China in colours such as purple, black and light blue.
Vivo Z6 pricing and availability
The Vivo Z6 5G phone is currently listed for reservations in China. Customers who pre-order the phone on February 28th will be provided XE900 earphones for free. The pricing of the phone is under wraps at present. However, it is likely to be priced under RMB 2,500 (~Rs 25,550). The Vivo Z5 had arrived in India as Vivo Z1X. Hence, it is likely that the Vivo Z6 may launch in India a few months later with a different moniker.
